MEET PBS's ARTHUR AND ENJOY MUSIC WITH JENNIFER TROWBRIDGE!

WTTW and the Poetry Foundation present this special weekend event for kids, which will include a variety of interactive crafts and activities. Guitarist and percussionist Jennifer Trowbridge, joined by clarinetist Don Jacobs and singer Alexis Hope, will perform original musical adaptations of classic poems. Kids will also have a chance to read and record poems and participate in a scavenger hunt. Plus, poetry-related episodes of Arthur will be screened in our performance space, and Arthur himself will come by for a visit!
